conducted according to generally accepted HIA practices, aimed at locating all
possible objects, sites and features of cultural significance in the area of the
During the survey no sites of cultural heritage significance was located in the area to
be developed. Therefore the development may continue.

therefore be taken when the development commences that if any of these are
discovered, a qualified archaeologist be called in to investigate.
